eBay has changed it's policy regarding insurance on shipping what you have purchased. It is no longer possible to list insurance as a separate line item in the listing so I am now ADDING the insurance to the cost of shipping. For example, until now, if the shipping cost for a catalog was $5, PLUS $1.75 for insurance the total was $6.75. Since I can no longer add the insurance cost on the invoice I am including it in the S & H charge which STILL TOTALS $6.75. As you can see, the TOTAL cost of shipping has not gone up a penny! I DO NOT ADD ONE CENT TO THE INSURANCE. IT IS CHARGED EXACTLY AT THE USPS RATE.

27 VINTAGE PLASTIC TOY VEHICLES!

Up for auction is this lot of 27 VINTAGE plastic cars & trucks a couple of boats and a train.
's what I know... in the TOP ROW, the 2 cars with the painted silver roofs, grilles and fenders are made by Renwall. Both have the number "103" as a license plate. BOTH are in EXCELLENT OR BETTER condition. The two cars to the right of those have little metal tips that come out of the "engine" compartment. They are attached to what looks like the top of a nail on a flexible plastic tab on the bottom. Looks to me like the were meant to pe pulled along magnetically. The screw has been removed from the blue one. I'm sure it was not supposed to have been t The screw did not damage the vehicle. The two bright blue and the green cars to the left of the Renwall cars have no make stasmped but they do have the number 1-133 molded in the plastic on the bottom. The dark blue car is rubber and is made by ACME. The dark green car on the left is Plasticville and the brown truck has no maker. For size comparison, the two Renwall cars are 4 3/16" long.
In the BOTTOM ROW... None of the vehicles have the name of the maker molded in the plastic. The yellow & green racing cars have the number "52" molded in the plastic. They are the only 2 in that row that have working wheels. None of the other toys have any identifying marks on them EXCEPT the gray plastic train tender, which is a Cracker Jack toy. For size comparison, the two racing cars are 3" from tip to tip. The boats are 3 1/4" long.
Total shipping weight is just over a pound so it has to go via Priority Mail, which costs $10 INCLUDING insurance.
